Hey,

I've finished designing the new AD DS Forest that the company is going to eventually migrate too.. I'm about to build the first Domain Controller for this new forest and I was wondering if there would be any issues with having it sit  on the same subnet as the old forest?

Besides DHCP (which wont be enabled on the new DC) is there anything else  that could pose an issue?

Please note there will be no migration at this point of time, as I need to do some intensive testing to ensure that a decent plan of action is designed before the migration occurs, which will be done in a virtual environment)

Thanks again

No problems having it on the same subnet.  For user migration (same for computer) you need to create DNS lookup between two domains, establish trust relation and finally install ADMT tool.
